After the craze took hold in the west I saw Peter Tosh in the Kaiser Center w/ Ronnie Wood for a few tunes then later in the season he was one of the opening bands for the Stones on one of The Day on The GREEN show . I don't remember the whole line up but definaetly Tosh and Santanna were there. The thing that was amazing was that is was the Stones ,Some Girls tour,during a long set break all of a sudden you heard a bunch of those work horse helicopters throwing ping-pong balls and blow up dolls and as all were looking up the Stones took the stage and ripped into Start Me up.Getting back I also saw The Mighty Diamonds, Roz Michaels and then later various Marley offshoots.Clapton was huge in bringing that across the world.
